Mirissa Beach, Mirissa
(4.1/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Crystal clear waters, unblemished scenery, and a fun little night market await you at Mirissa Beach. Not too commercial or touristy, the beach offers peace and quiet as you lie down on one of the sun beds lined up along the coast. Rougher waters make for great body surfing, and the rocks harbor some marine life to observe while snorkeling. You might be surprised to hear that whales and dolphins--even giant blue whales--live in the water off this beach, so keep your eyes open. During the evening, tables with fresh produce line up along the coast, so be sure to take your pick from the delicious options available. Use our Mirissa holiday planner to arrange your visit to Mirissa Beach and other attractions in Mirissa.

  • A beautiful, charming az nice to immerse and play with no waves. As usual in November you have to watch out on the sea currents but at this point they are safe because muscling in August on the lad and not vice versa.

  • The most gorgeous beach in Sri Lanka. We were only supposed to stay in Mirissa 4 days but ended up staying a week because it's so beautiful here. Nice soft sand and lovely clear blue sea. 
  • Restaurants galore, rolling waves and lovely scenery. Can't argue with that. Great for surfing and body boarding but also as good just to relax.
